Introducing Mr & Mrs Travis Card
I am going to do a VERY photo heavy post today. I am full of happiness for the best weekend with my family.
My sweet daughter got married.
My heart was happy but sad for those who could not be with us.
PHOTOS countless photos were taken to help make them feel a part of the celebration.
The reception was gorgeous and the lights adorned the backyard and pool.
Taylor was beaming.
She had done so MUCH work and was prepared. (so Taylor)
She had created her own DIY Photo Booth backdrop for photos with my new Studio Gold wrapping paper. It is GOLD glitter and she cut all the circles by hand. Then we attached to white paper and VOILA instant photo background. It was so beautiful and so simple.
I loved that everyone that could came to the wedding.
Matt and Kayla came from Huntington Beach, CA. I adore their sweet family. I love the grand babies. I had had surgery and was feeling AMAZING after the first day. So I treated them to lunch at my FAVORITE pizza place in Utah. Pizzeria Limonde (114th South).
We went to Thanksgiving Point- The Museum of Natural Curiosity on Saturday. You have to go there. I loved that Zach
and Ty loved it too. They loved playing with the kids. They adore the "babies" and are the best uncles.
Trust me your kids will THANK YOU one day for taking photos with them. Zach actually loves photos with me because
he'll tell you that I'm his best friend (well, minus the "girl" he is so "in like" with)... more on this later.
I would have to say this is my favorite PHOTO of the day because it was candid and I had no idea it was being taken. I am not even sure what was being said. It's just my sweet daughter on her wedding day. I love her!
Taylor and Travis had the MOST fun and relaxing day. Everyone was taking photos and having fun. FUN was on the agenda. Here is TC and I. Note: my son Ty is the photobomb. LOVE him!
There was a big movie screen in the back yard going with a movie for the kids. So POPCORN had to be available. I love it!
She picked out the most beautiful WHITE bouquet and dress. It was actually a top and a skirt. Taylor was stunning. I am so happy for her.
Now, this is where it get's crazy. Taylor and I printed so many photos. Yes, the courtship was documented. We were still printing on the day of the wedding. This is their courtship documented in photos.
The photographer who came was a CANON girl too.

I loved this photo of the newlyweds.
REAL... candid photos are the best. Sorry Taylor!
Our boys... Ty, Matt and Zach. We missed our Seth since
he is also serving a mission in Arizona right now.
Everyone was commenting on how much Zach and Matt look alike. They must have gotten their dads strong genes. Crazy huh?
PS the boys ADORE each other.
My boys and Kenadee. Yes, Zach is dating this wonderful young lady. I love watching him. She is the cutest girl and actually is so much like our McKay. (well, not as crazy- ha!)
Taylor made the most beautiful pool floaters. They were white with gold accents and they put lights in the pool. It was so stunning and elegant.
I love Taylor with Jaxon. She will be a great "second mom" to him. He adores her. I have no doubts that she will only influence him and love him in such a positive way.
Well, she is my daughter. ha ha...
So many photos were framed and EVERYWHERE-
along with my Studio Gold TC gold sequins...
Candid moment: Taylor with Jaxon. I love this photo.
Now, I am biased my heart MELTS for these two-
Zellie and Maxson
This is Maxson. BEST four year old EVER- seriously the easiest and sweetest boy. He is kind and silly... loves Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles and is going to be an architect someday (well, he loves to build things).
Zach, Travis and Travis. I am so thankful they found each other.
Not sure what Devan is doing here... but I had to show Tenneson. Best baby ever. He just is so sweet and let's anyone love him and hold him. Gentry was not wanting to let him go.
PHOTO BOOTH time.....
Gentry and Kayla
Matt and Kayla...
Oh, and I had WAFFLE LOVE come to the reception.
BEST plan ever. They made the best waffles for everyone.
Then you put nutella or strawberries with cream on top... you decide. MAJOR hit!!!
Zellie loved the strawberries.
PS... Zach dressed himself today. His sisters razzed him for being in all black. ha! Kenadee wore a dress like Gentry's- cute!
I have another grandson. I think he is adorable. He already gives me hugs and affection. This ten year old is special. I know he can count on me to love him just like the other grand babies.
It soon became dark. Many of our closest friends came. So many people asked about Ty and the kids on mission. We felt so much love. This is McKays best friends. Josilyn and Taylor Ann and more came. Gentry's best friends came. We had the most amazing small wedding and it was PERFECT!!!!! I love every single memory and photo. I will cherish this time and this weekend.
Now, I am preparing for the BIG event. Yes, I leave on Wednesday for my event in Vegas. I am barely sleeping. It's a HUGE undertaking to have 300 people at an event. This year is BIGGEST year EVER. I have went a "little" overboard. If you are in the area, there is a store on site- Down to Details. You can find everything and my BRAND NEW products too. Yes, I am bringing STUDIO GOLD. Trust me... you will want to stop by even if you were not able to get into the event.
I also have a new show today on www.mycraftchannel.com.
